More fraud has risen to the surface of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) plandemic cesspool, this time in Texas.
Deepak Kaushal, director of the Southwest National Primate Research Center at the Texas Biomedical Research Institute (Texas Biomed), admitted to fabricating data in a paper he published, as well as in two grant applications he filed with the federal government, including the infamous National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The study in question was published back in 2020 and was later retracted after it was determined that Kaushal fabricated the number of weekly doses of a treatment given to macaques with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, among other skewed data.
The American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine later published a retraction revealing that Kaushal’s study “did not conform to the state experimental protocol,” but that “the conclusions of the article may be correct.”
In the two grant applications, Kaushal claimed to be affiliated with both the Texas primate research center and the Tulane National Primate Research Center in Louisiana. Both of these institutions are still listed on the biography page of Kaushal’s website.
It turns out, however, that Kaushal had to be disciplined at the Texas center for more fraud, to which he was given “the minimal consequences,” according to center president Dr. Larry Schlesinger.
“Dr. Kaushal has received internal consequences, including significant oversight of his lab,” Schlesinger is quoted as saying.
“Texas Biomed is confident that this will not happen again and that Dr. Kaushal can continue to lead the Southwest National Primate Research Center capably and with integrity.”
